Default Heathrow to Gatwick

This coming September, at around 2:30pm one afternoon, my wife and I
will need to get from Heathrow airport to Gatwick airport. I know that
we can take a bus. We've taken a bus before, but the current bus was
full and we had to wait a long time for the next one. About how much
would a taxi cost? Is there another alternative we should consider?

Trains are very inconvenient, indirect routes with changes.
A taxi would be around £50/70 depending on quote.
Travel times would be around 75 minutes.
We often do this trip from 20 minutes towards Gatwick from Heathrow.

That's a very steep price for a 20-minute trip.

Is there directly bus service?

Or maybe save a little on Uber or Mini Cabs?
